ROCKPORT — Pen Bay Medical Center will mark the completion of Phase I of its Emergency Department expansion project by opening its new addition and ED entrance Wednesday, Oct. 5. The temporary entrance set up when construction began last year will close at that time.

The work is part of a three-phase 24-month construction project that will nearly double the size of the PBMC Emergency Department when completed in 2024. When the new addition opens in October, it will house a larger waiting room, multiple registration windows and eight new patient rooms.

Once the new addition opens to patients, the current Emergency Department space will shut down for renovations.
